Extraordinary tables. Intimated by nature and inspired by you
The Making Of An Epoxy Resin River Table From Beginning To End
Taking the natural beauty of the outdoors and bringing it indoors is our goal with every piece of furniture we create. Yet it is our river tables that capture the look and feel of nature more than any of our other creations. River tables are created when two live edges of a hardwood slab are placed facing each other a slight distance apart and colored epoxy is poured into the resulting gap.
The epoxy cures to a lustrous translucent sheen that gives it the appearance of water. Contrasted with the wood’s intricate grain patterns, the lighter sapwood and darker heartwood, and the brilliant hues exposed by our special finish process, the epoxy resin river forms a striking feature that is unique to each table we build.
Special lighting on the table’s underside gives the epoxy a luminous glow. Items embedded in the epoxy such as river stones, glitter, starfish, or other memorabilia add yet another layer of amazing to the table.
It is said that nature helps calm the mind and soothe the soul. Our hope is that our river tables do the same.
A deeper dive into river tables.
At our woodworking facility outside Cleveland, Ohio, our customized river tables take shape as dining tables, coffee tables, nightstands, kitchen tables, conference tables, kitchen islands, countertops and desks. Rivers can also be custom made into other types of furniture, such as wall art and headboards.
Each river table we create is handcrafted by our team of woodworking specialists using only the highest quality materials made in America. The solid hardwood slab that you select from our massive inventory has been air-dried and kiln-dried for up to two years to remove moisture that causes warping and other problems. The environmentally-friendly resins and epoxies that go into our tables come from highly respected U.S. companies like Ecopoxy and Totalboat. And, for our finishes, we apply the most durable catalyzed lacquer that Mohawk Finishing Products has to offer. Visit our materials page for more information.
